uda_june-2012_press_en_smallThe Universal Declaration on Archives was initiated by the International Council on Archives (ICA) and adopted by UNESCO on November 10, 2011.  The document asserts the belief that Archives secure human rights, establish a collective memory and underpin accountable and transparent governments. The president of ICA, David Fricker, calls upon archivists, records managers, and the general public to show support for the UDA by downloading the document in  your own language, posting it in a visible location at your place of employment and signing the online Declaration.  I did–now it’s your turn!
